When my sister and I were kids (I was about 7ish making her 5ish), we’d grab the pool net (the one used to remove the floating bugs and leaves), and we’d go hunting for butterflies around the backyard.
Now my parent’s backyard is big- and it was and still is filled with trees, plants, and flowers. This was a perfect place to collect all sorts of bugs and insects.
We’d fill our clear empty container with all sorts of things – caterpillars, worms, grasshoppers, and rollie pollies, but butterflies were our favorite.
I’m not really sure what kind of butterflies we were collecting, it was just fun trying to trap them before they flew off. Sadly, I’m sure some of them died from shock, but we did release them.
I’ve had these butterfly stamps for quite awhile. They’ve been sitting in my stamp drawer unused. I often wondered if I’d ever actually use them.
As I glanced these stamps today, I was immediately reminded of those days my sister and I would chase butterflies. Finally, I was able to utilize those stamps for all the right reasons.
Here’s how I made this layout.
First, I must share this, I’ve decided to finally make the transition and use a different company for my bullet journal needs. It was a long time coming. I’ll go more into details in another post.
For the first part of the layout I decided to block off certain parts of the journal and stamp butterflies on both sides. I used this acrylic block, butterfly rubber stamps (similar), and this ink pad.
Then, I hand lettered the month, September, with one of my favorite pink brush pens.
And for the last part of the calendar I wrote in the date with the pink pen from this set.
Supplies I used
Bullet Journal and Ruler
Rubber Stamps (butterfly stamp is similar), Ink Pad, Stamp Blocks
